    My cat got in a fight with a coyote


    a couple mornings ago, she was hiding next to the back door, in terrible shape, we brought her in the house and for a day she couldn't get moving other than dragging herself with her front paws, so I contacted my daughter that works at a vet, we suspected she got into it with either a coyote or a bear. A bear had been seen in several yards the past couple of days and we hear coyotes every night, we did not suspect that she was hit by a car cause she was at back door, not front door.

    my daughter came over and brought her to work for x-rays

    broken spine, just behind the back legs. yesterday morning her tail was amputated, the vet was able to find the bite marks during the surgery and confirm she tangled with a coyote. We will have to massage her bladder for a few week till she can pee on her own again

    Oz, the Siamese bobcat

    I hope so, the prospect of massaging her bladder every 3-4 hours is going to be a lot of work, she was a stray cat that showed up on our doorstep a couple years ago when we were considering getting a mouser for rodent control, she has done an excellent job, this isn't her first fight, she's an outdoor cat, no litter box, we only feed her raw meat (she loves chicken gizzards) her first fight, she lost one of her fangs, she come home one night with her face half ripped off and healed in a week (we think that was a fight with a racoon)

    Must have been one hell of a fight to break her spine. She's a trooper!

    I had a Siamese once. I would guess it had to have been a bear AND a coyote. Mine was down right vicious. Speedy recovery for the kitty.

    Oz is not afraid of anything, I have heard her growl like large wildcats and swipe a dog in the nose so fast the dog didn't see it coming and draw plenty of blood while doing it

    cats are quick. If they understood some of the laws of physics though, they'd keep themselves out of trouble.

    Wow she is a fighter & a tenacious one, given the coyotes in NE are really more wolf than coyotes, unlike the smaller coyotes out west. Speedy recovery kitten

    ^This. I have owned 5 cats in my lifetime and all have been indoor cats for that very reason, no need to worry where they are, or if they're still alive.

    Re: My cat got in a fight with a coyote

    Oz is an outdoor cat and will always be an outdoor cat, no kitty litter in my house. She doesn't like snow much so she doesn't go out in the winter much other than to shit and pee, soon as snow is gone, she wants to be out hunting all night, but in daytime she stays indoors, mostly sleeping in our bed. . When we adopted her from being a stray, we swore if anything happened, so be it, I never expected that we would be spending the money that we are for her care, getting her spayed and an abortion when we first got her was enuf when we first got her, now, tail amputation , then our vet transferred her to their other clinic where they have equipment for laser therapy. Anne went to visit her this morning, she is still getting more laser therapy for here red blood cells, on IV, a lot more wounds than we first thought, should count toward our family medical deductible right ! We should be bringing her home from the vet tomorrow, I will post pics of her shaved bobtail ass.

    They become family and then we do retarded things for them (and it's worth it). Sometimes they're better than our actual faimly

    When I first got my cat he go into a fight with a raccoon twice his size.

    The raccoon learned its lesson.

    Gotta put it upside down. Or get a dog crate.

    Usually the vet will give you a sedative.

    I'm not at all a cat person, but that little dude is actually kinda cool. Glad for you & Ann that it seems it'll work out. Not for not, but a friend in Gilmanton lost a cat last summer to a bobcat. Watched it all go down. In fact, the dumbass bobcat attacked his deer archery target...

    that was first thing I thought of, except that the ends are rounded at the top, we ended up putting here in our bedroom and closing doors, it's where she normally spends the day anyway

    Re: My cat got in a fight with a coyote

    noticeable improvement every day and even more after a laser treatment at the vet (2 more appointments to go), we still have to express her bladder, she refuses to use a litter box (we even put some of her old poo in it), but goes downstairs into our cellar to a patch of dirt floor between my 2 furnaces that she uses when she can't get outdoors, not sure if she's doing here business or not.
    she walk pretty quickly now, with more of a skip in her walk rather than a limp and she is beginning to attempt higher jumps, she can go up and down our metal spiral stair into cellar with no problem at all, but needs something to step up on to get into our bed where she likes to sleep
